Yes. Workers compensation is a “no fault system.” This means that any time you are injured while performing your job, even if the injury is a result of your own negligence or recklessness, you are eligible to file a workers compensation claim.

While a Chicago workers compensation lawyer can explain specifically what constitutes a workers compensation injury, for the most part it can be defined by the following questions:

  • Are you an employee?
  • Did you sustain an injury?
  • Did the injury: 
    1. Happen while you were employed,
    2. Occur as a result of performing your job function, and
    3. Cause you to be impaired and/or lose wages.

If the answer to the above questions is “yes,” most likely you are eligible to file a workers compensation claim.

If you still aren’t sure if your work-related injury should be covered by workers compensation, you should look to a Chicago workers compensation lawyer and your local workers compensation board. They have the knowledge and expertise to guide you through the process of filing a claim. Your employer may not be your best resource, as workers compensation claims can be costly on their end and most employers prefer to avoid work related injuries altogether.
